Opposition Leader and Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Leader Sajith Premadasa on Friday (18) appointed a committee to monitor and protect the environment.

“The committee is to be headed by SJB MP Nalin Bandara Jayamaha,” SJB General Secretary MP Ranjith Madduma Bandara told The Sunday Morning.

It consists of MPs Rohini Kaviratne and Kavinda Jayawardana.

The SJB General Secretary said the committee will look into the various environmental issues that the country is facing. “Forests being cleared, illegal sand mining, illegal quarrying – there are a host of environmental issues that need to be addressed and this committee will be spearheading the Opposition’s efforts in this regard,” he pointed out.
